Massive underdog Khama Worthy gave fans a fight at their first finale earlier tonight (Saturday, August 17, 2019) at UFC 241 from inside the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., Without he expected the promise of lightweight prospect Devonte Smith to come to an end with the first round TKO (blows).
Worthy, who is making his UFC debut with less than a week's notice, made his bid towards the end of the first round during an inside exchange. Smith looked to land a combination as Worthy fired the blows and found a home for a short left counter that immediately hit "King Kage" and forced him to the canvas. Smith looked down but Worthy still stooped to a few quick shots before calling for the bout.

Through this performance, Worthy breaks Smith's lightweight lift and easily locks biggest win of his career. The 32-year-old certainly does not look to his league against the biggest favorites on the card and should score another big spot next season. After all, Worthy had about four days to prepare for his debut at the Octagon and look what happened.
